At Miyajima Aquarium, see 13,000 creatures of 350 distinct species from the Seto-inland Sea.

  • Now, "observed hooting marine" that you personed (? Lol) is exploring the Miyajima Aquarium, just big enough so just right. Really, just look at fun to eyeball their sushi a lot doing the event because I think (think what would stay about 1-3 hours). While the sea was so much fun. By zookeepers and animals breathe is perfect for the halajaradkidoki organization of the show is interesting.

  • Did the aquarium or display the culture of oysters were the visitors for the first time, but the different aquariums up to now our idea packed. Without boring (1 time to 30 minutes), and various events are held, was that during the time has passed. I would have lost but it is rude to say unexpectedly because those places come good with.

  • It is too wide, so have a look also to the Miyajima (of course not too small) medium size Aquarium. Rays, moray eels, sharks, such as standard life can now see the show and the sea lion and penguin feeding. Especially, penguins are seen at fairly close range and a nice staff commentary. I listened I went by two adults.
